Mantralaya fire destroys Salman ‘Hit & Run’ case files


Mumbai: In a bizarre reply to a RTI seeking details on the Salman Khan hit and run case, the Maharashtra home department claimed that All records pertaining to the Salman Khan hit-and-run case of 2002 were reportedly burnt in a fire at the Mantralaya in 2012.

In a bizzare explanation – the home department claimed that it was not possible to share any information before the fire struck. The only information available with the government on the case is that Special Public Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat was appointed by paying a fee of Rs 6000 per hearing.

On the early morning of September 28, 2002, Salman had rammed his Toyota Land Cruiser onto a footpath in Bandra where people were sleeping, killing one and injuring four others. On May 6 2015, the actor was convicted for ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’ and other charges and sentenced to five years imprisonment.

The actor appealed against the sessions court ruling in the Bombay High Court which suspended the sentence and enlarged him on bail. On the other hand the Rajasthan high Court will hear the arms act case against salman Khan on July 8.
